President Column

A message from Deb Mehr, SNOM President:

Our SNOM Board met on October 22nd and at our annual business meeting at the SNOM Conference on November 3rd. We are currently reviewing and updating our strategic plan, and welcome your input and feedback throughout the process. We will actively solicit your input as we go, but please reach out at any time.

The annual conference was well attended and we are pleased to offer continuing education credits through ANCC that are eligible for your recertification through NBCSN. I sincerely thank the program committee for their collaboration with the University of Minnesota and Fairview to make this happen. Congratulations to Ann Lumbar Bendson, our School Nurse of the Year, and to our newly nationally certified school nurses and retirees. Your contributions to our profession and our community are appreciated!

We celebrate our transitioning Board Members: Liz Zeno, Sue Nokleby, Tara Cliff and Lil Levine and appreciate your continued support in your new roles. Stay tuned as we strengthen relationships with our stakeholders in pursuit of data collection and excellence in school nursing!

Your SNOM Board
